Case Summary:

The field of bioinformatics has seen significant progress since our client, a prominent research scientist, joined the ranks of other influential researchers immersed in the field. With a focus on the development of computational tools for cancer targeting and diagnosis, our client‘s work addresses some of the United States’ most pressing issues in understanding the use of computational resources for the improvement of cancer treatment strategies. His work has resulted in various achievements, all of which make up an impressive professional career. When he approached us for help with his EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition, we ensured that his career was the focal point of our presentation to the USCIS.

Our client’s EB-1A petition packet was partly composed of the following: his citation count, publication record, and peer review experience. When we filed the case, these numbers stood at 177 citations, 13 scientific articles and 1 book chapter, and 31 instances of peer review service. We left no room for doubt that our client is an asset not just to the field of bioinformatics but the U.S. as a whole. Furthermore, we highlighted his Ph.D. in Genome Science & Technology and proved that his educational background has laid the groundwork for him to continue obtaining impactful research results.

We were not the only ones singing his praises. Several experts in the field advocated for the approval of our client’s EB-1A petition by signing recommendation letters. These letters contained statements that confirmed the value of our client’s research to other bioinformatics around the world, all of whom are working collectively to progress the field. According to one of our client’s recommenders: “For his contributions to cancer detection research, [Client] can safely be considered one of the best scientific resources available to the United States for the sake of medical advancement. As his research is still in progress, his continued active presence in the country is of the utmost importance. It is in the United States’ best interest to ensure that it is maintained for as long as possible.”

We congratulate our client for obtaining an EB-1A petition approval and thank him for choosing to work with North America Immigration Law Group ( We also wish him well as he continues to progress the field of bioinformatics.
